2008 Diamond Games
Henin, Serena Williams top attractions at the Diamond Games in Antwerp
ANTWERP, Belgium - Top-ranked Justine Henin and Australian Open champion Serena Williams will top the draw for next month's WTA Diamond Games tournament.
Henin will play the Feb. 11-17 event for the first time in five years, organizers announced Tuesday. Other top-20 players include Anna Chakvetadze of Russia, Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia and Tatiana Golovin of France.
Amelie Mauresmo of France will not defend her title after she won the 1-million euro (C$1.4 million) diamond racket for good last year. The trophy goes to any three-time winner in a five-year span.
The new diamond racket will have 2008 gems studded on its frame.
The Diamond Games is one of the most popular indoor tournaments and drew 14,500 fans to the final at the Sports Palace last year.
